We are Rukmini Callimachi and Andy Mills from The New York Times, and our podcast "Caliphate" investigates who ISIS really is, how they attracted legions of followers and how they stayed in power so long.
Thanks so much for joining us -- we're wrapping things up. And thanks so much for listening to "Caliphate."
Throughout "Caliphate," we spoke with members of the Islamic State, focusing a lot of time on a former ISIS recruit who traveled to Syria but is now living in Canada. We also traveled to Mosul, where we hunted down Islamic State documents and spoke to survivors of the group's worst atrocities, including a young Yazidi girl who was enslaved by the group for nearly three years.
